Markham 2012 Chardonnay – Napa Valley. Freshly picked Bartlett pear and Golden Delicious apple aromas are highlighted by decadent vanilla and steely mineral notes.

Cana’s Feast 2010 Bricco Red- Columbia Valley, Washington. Vibrant aromas of red cherry and huckleberry blend beautifully with a hint of barrel spice to round out the bouquet.

Kiona 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Washington. This Cabernet Sauvignon showcases dark plum and clove on the palate, which are balanced nicely by aromas of black tea, smoke, and earth. A velvety mouthfeel and grippy tannins underpin the elegant flavor profile.
